Course Description

The main goal of this topic is to provide the student with the basic knowledge of the magnetic and thermal properties of most common industrial materials. Magnetic materials have a vital importance in a wide variety of applications at the industrial level, like computers (hard drives and reading heads, etc.), permanent magnets (motors, actuators, etc.), magnetic shielding, sensors, etc. The student will learn the general concepts required to understand the basis of all the applications mentioned. In parallel, the thermal properties of materials are also fundamental to understand a great number of applications in modern industry. The student will learn the basic concepts governing heat diffusion and the physical properties that lead to the thermal conductivity of different materials. Within the subject of thermal transfer, we will only cover the transfer within materials (diffusion and briefly convection). We do not cover radiation, which is a subject more appropriate for other topics.
